The Topics:
Droid vs. iPhone

Verizon, Google, and Motorola are making lots of noise about the new Droid phone, which runs Android 2.0 and does some things that the iPhone can't, such as advanced multitasking. Can the Droid take on the iPhone?

Google Talks Up Chrome OS

Web applications such as Gmail and Google Wave are paving the way for major adoption of the Google Chrome Web browser and fueling the forthcoming Chrome Operating System, says Sundar Pichai, a Google VP. Does Chrome OS have a chance?

Hulu to Charge for Content

Hulu's backers want to stick lots of its content behind a paywall starting next year. News Corp. executives have said that the free, ad-supported model isn't "bringing home enough bacon." Will people pay for Hulu content?

Verizon Tackles Texting While Driving

Verizon has launched TV ads and billboards aimed at stopping people from texting and driving. Can anything really stop people from doing it?

U.S. Regulators to Come After Intel

The FTC is moving toward opening a formal complaint against Intel, saysa Reuters report. The report comes in the wake of the European Commission fining Intel $1.44 billion in May, after finding it guilty of paying rebates to PC makers in order to shut out competition from rivals such as AMD.
